Hazel Court passed away Tuesday at the age of 82. She starred in Hammer Studios’ groundbreaking The Curse of Frankenstein as well as several of Roger Corman’s Poe flicks – Premature Burial, The Raven, and The Masque of the Red Death. She also starred in Dr. Blood’s Coffin. Additionally, she did a lot of TV work in things like Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Boris Karloff’s Thriller, and The Twilight Zone. Her last role, that I am aware of, was an uncredited part in Omen III: The Final Conflict.
What incompetent hack thought that up? Remaking, beg pardon re-imagining, The Day the Earth Stood Still is, to say the least, one of the stupidest ideas I have ever heard. I don’t think I’ll be seeing it – even when released on DVD. You have to draw the line somewhere.
